Calver Weir is an important part of our local and industrial heritage. It was originally constructed in the 18th Century to provide water power to Calver Mill.
Despite its importance, by the early 21st Century, it had fallen into serious disrepair.
The Calver Weir Restoration Project charity was set up in 2004 to rescue the weir for future generations. Their web site, giving much more information on the Weir, its history and its restoration, is available here.
The Weir, together with its associated water management system, is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and is Grade II Listed. Details of its history, importance and the reasons for giving it the highest level of protection are available on the Historic England web-site here.
